Not quite sure where the misunderstanding is coming from

My first question is what Allegiance does?

Today, after some uncompromising bombing, I had some interesting experience.

There are 3 case studies during the bombing: a terran and two barren.

The terran had 3 hydrid II. I bombed it until its pop was under 40. Mantles, barracks, cotex, variance stopped, but hydrids II and dico kept functioning! Although the sum of PD from 3 hydrid II was 3% but it's still incredible! You can't believe this one month ago. I didn't capture it, but its recovery thanks to being terran made it very annoying.

The first barren had 6 offense II and 2 Biosphere. I bombed it until its pop was under 40. 2 of 6 offense II still worked. But I managed to capture it after bombing all barracks. 1 hour later, it did not recover, it alarmed again and again about its poorness. Damn!

The second barren with 3 automated farm and no def, only mantles & factories was also bombed until its pop was under 40. It recovered fully after a short period of time.

I have come to a conclusion.
Structures can no longer be paused unless they take a resource that has a shortage (Workers,Food,Power). Planets runs a check every 60 seconds to see if structures can be put back on given that the planet has no more shortages of the type they drain.
Structures are now linearly efficient if the tech level drops lower then what they require

Dome is the only structure that you can pause. Not sure if this is a bug.

Both of these features create a very different stable ability of kinds of planet. All types with high pop potential, exclude barren, are very difficult to capture. They can recover to full gradually. Barren, on the opposite, may never come back if it doesn't grow upon Automated Farm. When 1.672 comes to live, people should build only automated farm on barren.

I admit that I dislike the pausing prohibit. But the linearly efficient level is excellent. Offense II now has a chance to perform long lasting. Though, I keep my perspective that Hydrid II is a better choice: lower pop, lower tech, lower power, higher PD.

Oh and AI wisdom increases a lot! Imagine the day all players quit this game, the existence of NPC definitely maintains this game as if it's alive!

Updated planet allegiance to affect other planetary systems (as detailed in the dev log).

the defense changes were removed for this version, so the answer to your question is no. Those changes will be added in sometime later after I rework them.

I keep getting lockups in the middle of the game for no apparent reason. Not sure why it keeps happening, I did install a 6990m in place of my 460m and it could have something to do with the drivers, but idk.
